This week in music 03.05.2014

This week’s featured releases come from Brand-new Idol Society and C-ute.


Brand-new Idol Society – “Who Killed Idol?”


It is with a heavy heart and maybe the smallest hint of a tear in my eye that I find myself talking about Brand-new Idol Society’s latest and last album release this week. They’re breaking up in a few months and…yeah, more on that nearer the time. On a more positive note, “Who Killed Idol?” has a really solid selection of songs on offer. Things like “Fly“, “Hi“, “BiSimulation” and “GET YOU” are all on here and you should already know all about them. If you don’t, what are you waiting for? Go get this album and listen to them until your ears fall off.


C-ute – “Kokoro No Sakebi Wo Uta Ni Shitemita / Love Take It All


C-ute are our other featured release for this week with the now almost industry standard double a-side offering. It really is a single of two halves. “Kokoro No Sakebi Wo Uta Ni Shitemita” is your kind of preppy and refined pop song, for the classy among us. “Love Take It All” on the other hand is your more standard electro-pop number for those of us who like to let our hair down every now and then. It creates an interesting contrast although it is somewhat schizophrenic. I personally like both songs quite a bit and would recommend you give them a shot too.

If you’re looking for other cool stuff to check out this week, I personally found Electric Ribbon, Giselle4 and Otome Shinto to be offering up some pretty enjoyable releases. Until next week.
